attacks that we thought we could have had because we have these protocols put in place after 9-11. jim clapper, across the board from what i have heard, the intel community thinks he's a partisan person, leaning towards the democrats, toward president obama and he put out this statement on friday night to ease things for the white house going in. if i were the press, on behalf of the american people regardless if they're republican or democrat, i would try to get to some better answers as to why didn't we know what we didn't know and why did we spread falsehoods -- >> steve: you think the press is going to ask tough questions of this administration, you're nuts. >> wait a minute. >> gretchen: what i'm trying to get it, and you've been there. you worked inside. so you know. are you saying that jim clapper acted independently and you're saying susan rice may have acted independently and this isn't all part of a strategy to figure out how they're going to handle the libyan situation? >> i think it's almost more that they don't have any strategy at all. everyone was working independently.

and instead listen to substance. i appreciate the fact athat jim lehrer asked questions about substance. i appreciated that i was able to ask obama about obamacare. i asked, why is it that the middle class is still buried in this country? why we have millions of people out of work? why is it that half of our children coming out of college cannot find a job? why is it that when he took office, 32 million people are on food stamps? i asked him those questions. you heard his answers. as a result of those answers, the american people recognize that he and i stand for something very different. i will help the american people get good jobs and a bright future. [cheers and applause] even more importance than what was happening in the past was what he plans on doing for the future. he had the chance to describe his vision for the future. what it was was more of the same. he described a series of ideas that we have heard before. he talks about a stimulus and hiring more government workers and having the government making investments. of course, he talks about raising taxes. they plan to raise taxes
